Re­flect­ing Peo­ple’s Con­cerns, As­pi­ra­tions

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - ACTUAL -

The draft state pro­gram for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Strat­egy for Action in the Year of Sup­port for Ac­tive En­trepreneur­ship, In­no­va­tive Ideas and Tech­nolo­gies is widely stud­ied and dis­cussed by the pub­lic of our coun­try.

The doc­u­ment re­flects peo­ple’s con­cerns and prob­lems. Each item of the project is aimed at noble goals serv­ing the in­ter­ests of the peo­ple. Our com­pa­tri­ots, sup­port­ing the strength­en­ing of the pro­tec­tion of the rights of cit­i­zens, put for­ward their pro­pos­als.

This was stated at a brief­ing or­ga­nized at the Cen­ter for De­vel­op­ment Strat­egy de­voted to the dis­cus­sion of the pri­or­ity ar­eas for en­sur­ing the rule of law and fur­ther re­form­ing the ju­di­cial and le­gal sys­tem in­cluded in the draft state pro­gram.

The draft State Pro­gram out of 237 points re­flected ideas and at­ti­tudes voiced by the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan in the Ad­dress to Oliy Ma­jlis of De­cem­ber 22, 2017, as well as tasks iden­ti­fied in the Strat­egy of Action.

At the event, in par­tic­u­lar, it was noted that the ac­tiv­i­ties of the courts are be­ing im­proved. How­ever, cit­i­zens are not yet fully us­ing the courts to pro­tect their rights. The draft State Pro­gram pro­vides prac­ti­cal mea­sures to en­sure the true in­de­pen­dence of the court. Step-bystep work is be­ing car­ried out on the ba­sis of the Action Strat­egy, and it be­gan to yield re­sults. Over the past six months since the cre­ation of a sin­gle ju­di­cial sys­tem, the Supreme Court has in­tro­duced more than 10 bills to the par­lia­ment. Three of them are drafts of new codes; they are ap­proved by the Se­nate. Con­sis­tent im­prove­ment of the leg­is­la­tion will en­sure that the judge is sub­ject only to the law, the in­vi­o­la­bil­ity of his in­de­pen­dence. Ap­proval of can­di­dacy for the po­si­tion of a judge, tak­ing into ac­count the opin­ion of the pub­lic, will en­sure trans­parency in the sys­tem.

- To en­sure the in­ter­ests of cit­i­zens, they must know their rights well. To this end, the sys­tem of ren­der­ing le­gal as­sis­tance to the jus­tice bod­ies this year will be im­proved, - said the First Deputy Min­is­ter of Jus­tice N. Ju­raev. - For ex­am­ple, in many cases, lawyers are en­gaged in the pro­tec­tion of the rights of cit­i­zens and le­gal en­ti­ties only in court. We will ex­pand their le­gal pro­tec­tion ac­tiv­i­ties. They will work in le­gal ser­vices, pro­vide con­sult­ing ser­vices to en­trepreneurs. The scale of train­ing of le­gal per­son­nel will be ex­panded. Mod­ern meth­ods of dis­sem­i­nat­ing le­gal in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing through the In­ter­net, so­cial net­works, are use­ful to peo­ple. There­fore, such work will be fur­ther ex­panded with the in­tro­duc­tion of an on­line con­sul­ta­tion sys­tem.

- The propiska (po­lice regis­tra­tion) re­mains a top­i­cal is­sue. As de­fined in the draft State Pro­gram, in this is­sue will be cre­ated con­ve­nience for cit­i­zens, - said the first deputy chief mi­gra­tion and cit­i­zen­ship depart­ment of the Min­istry of In­ter­nal Af­fairs U. Toshkhu­jaev. - Cur­rently, there is a prac­tice of tem­po­rary regis­tra­tion of cit­i­zens on the ba­sis of a lease agree­ment. How­ever, this leads to red tape, loss of time and money. In this re­spect, sim­pli­fi­ca­tions will be in­tro­duced for cit­i­zens. But com­pletely to refuse a regis­tra­tion it is im­pos­si­ble yet. This re­quires a lot of prepara­tory work. The bal­anced so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment of all re­gions will in and of it­self elim­i­nate this prob­lem. It is planned to be­gin work on the in­tro­duc­tion of ID-cards widely used in in­ter­na­tional prac­tice, fur­ther im­prove­ment of the cur­rent pass­port.
